A few things inspired me to make blueberry ice cream this summer. First, lately my daughter just LOVES blueberries. Second, my husband's parents were in town visiting from Hawaii, and while they were here they would often go to Trader Joe's and buy giant boxes of blueberries for my kids to eat. And finally, it's summer, and I've been on an ice-cream making kick!
I found a recipe for raspberry ice cream in my copy of David Lebovitz's "The Perfect Scoop", so I used that recipe and substituted blueberries instead.
The color of the ice cream came out beautiful. And although I enjoyed the flecks of fresh blueberries in it, next time I think I'll try cooking the blueberries down first, to see if I can make a more concentrated blueberry flavor.
I just happened to get frozen wild blueberries from my friend who moved out of the country -- hope I can try this after my vacation!ReplyDelete
My son would totally love that ♥
I just love that color and my kids loves blueberries. What a refreshing treat for the summer.ReplyDelete

Beautiful colour! I do know what you mean about the flavour though. I've just tried making a checkerboard cake with blueberries but the flavour wasn't intense enough. Good to try though Happy baking!ReplyDelete
